There are a couple of things I just crave this time of year, after the Holidays and before Spring, and this Epic Apple Salad with Apple Honey Vinaigrette is one of them. Another is soup, especially healthy ones like The Original Fat Burning Soup here on my site.
It’s so hot here in Georgia, it’s hard to believe fall is coming – but one thing that signals fall, beyond the weather? Great prices on pork and plenty of apples showing up at the store. That’s what inspired this Apple & Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin!
I know I’ve been gone for a while (I moved to Atlanta in September & it took a while to find my feet!) but I’m back. And look, I bought pie, figuratively speaking of course! If you’re looking for a knockout pie for the holidays (or just about anytime) that still has some down-home flair, you just can’t go wrong with a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie. It’s really one of my fave apple pies (ok, I have two favorites, this one and a caramelly one that I’ll post sometime) from the crispy, crunchy streusel on top down to the layer upon layer of tart, creamy, dreamy apples.
German Baked Apples Bratapfel takes me right back to childhood! I don’t think at the time anyone thought of them as being particularly “German.” They were, like so many recipes that were ubiquitous to the Midwest, just a part of small-town, down-home cooking. Baked apples appeared a lot-at our table for dessert.
I don’t know if I was happy or horrified by how well the Brussels sprouts I had in the fridge kept! I’ve been checking on them, watching as there were certainly things more desperate to be used at my house. They’ve been in my fridge veggie drawer since the first week we high-risk people were told to stay in so that’s five weeks now, I think! Well, it was high time to get after them and so came about this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apple & Feta.
